Biography

2006 Music PEI Award winners:

2006 Music PEI Award nominee:
-Rock Recording of the Year

EDGE is a four piece rock band from Summerside PEI. Members include Moe Hashie on drums & vocals; Andy Gallant on bass & vocals; Jason Arsenault on lead guitar & vocals and Chris Ahern on lead vocals & guitar. Though the band formed in 1999, the guys have actually been friends and played music together most of their lives. Their camaraderie, talent and musical connection shines through onstage, thus they quickly became a local favourite playing clubs, festivals, and special events.

Fans, friends and family have been urging the guys to record an album for a while now. After four years of writing songs, revamping them, discarding them and so on, the band was ready to record. They entered the studios in October 2004 and emerged with a set of rocking tunes and ballads in May 2005. The album was mixed and mastered at Lakewind Sound Studios in Cape Breton in June 2005 with an official release in August 2005.

The result is a very appealing mainstream radio friendly collection of songs. If there is any justice in the music business, Rock radio and Top 40 CHR stations should be all over this very accessible and commercial gem. Tunes like Star, I Can’t See You, Back 2 Me, Dreams, Why and She Loves Me were made to be listened to while cruising down the highway, just hanging out or working late at night at a job you would rather not have. Listen for yourself!

Lyrics

Star

Written By: (lyrics) Ahern, (music) Edge

I gotta get away, run away from you
I’m sick of nine to five, sick of this town too
I’m gonna pack my stuff, I’ve made up my mind
There’s no turning back
Leave this life behind

I’ve been hanging round round this little town

Next time I'll catch you on the flipside baby
Wanna play guitar gonna be a star

New York or L.A., Don’t care where I go
Cause if I don’t try then I'll never know
I got my Les Paul, and my Marshall too
I’m going all the way, going without you

I've been hanging round, round this little town
It's time to make a change I’m going crazy
I’ve been here too long, time to bring it on

I’ve been hanging round, round this little town
Next time I'll catch you on the flipside baby
Wanna play guitar gonna be a star

I've been hanging round, round this little town
It's time to make a change I’m going crazy
I’ve been here too long, time to bring it on

I’ve been hanging round, round this little town
Next time I'll catch you on the flipside baby
Wanna play guitar gonna be a star

Revelation

Written By: (lyrics) Ahern/Hashie, (music) Edge

You should sit down
It’s a meltdown
Alarms are ringing at the station

Cries of terror
No they can’t hide
Walls of thunder thirty feet high

Crazy blind man
On his soapbox
Preaching mass destruction

Another five point
Is this the big one?
Chaos has begun

Sacrifice – You better run for your life
Hold on tight – Blinded by the light
Revelation, Revelation

Watch the house burn
See the city burn
Make the world burn
Feel the burn, feel the burn, feel it?

I Can't See You

Written By: (lyrics) Ahern/Hashie, (music) Edge

I can’t trust you anymore
You let me down too many times
They say you’re rotten to the core
You can’t hide behind your lies

I haven’t slept too many nights
Been your shadow for so long
Today’s monotony is my life
I always thought I had it all

You got me in disbelief
Stole my heart just like a thief
Then you walked away from me

I cant see you anymore.. Refuse to be there for you
It always seemed like such a chore doesn’t it matter to you
Your arrogance has left me wanting more

You got my self esteem so low
If you cant see me then you’re blind
Don’t deny that nothings wrong
Broke my heart played with my mind

You need to know Never knock me down again
We're killin time you need to go
It’s a little late to be my friend...be my friend

Your distain I can’t ignore
My confidence is lacking You are so distracting
This game can’t continue anymore
